poppiesPoppies picked from one of our gardens
Poppies always bring a smile but it’s this news just in from my Mom that has us all dancing “round the house with such glee!

“Hi: Paul’s post-op checkup was better than anyone dared hope. He and Mike were back here about 10:45 and by 12:00 he had the car packed and hit the road back to Todd.

Needless to say he was ecstatic, removed the feeding tube and all the stitches. He had lost about ten more pounds since the surgery but is managing more every day. He will be able to continue any tests or CT scans in Boone. They are recommending that in about a month’s time that he take another course of chemo, which is really insurance against recurrence and is not as severe, all this will be with the Boone oncologist working with Duke. .

Almost exactly four months to the day since the start of treatment. A lost summer but the end results have made it all worthwhile. They said his team of doctors were all beaming with pride.

He is really looking forward to getting home, expect he will likely go back to work in about a month.
Take care. Love to all

How good is that?!?!

      Poppies always put a smile on the dial & love Paul’s best friend Cameron’s comment that while we have the cancer gene we also have the kickin cancer’s ass gene as well. Ha!
